The Waring School Athletics program fosters the development of character and personal responsibility through sports. It promotes teamwork, sportsmanship, fitness and individual mastery of athletic skills. As an integral part of Waring’s mission, athletics promotes the leadership and interpersonal skills necessary to a community built on respect, camaraderie, stewardship, sacrifice, discovery, and pride in individual accomplishment. The Athletics program cultivates lifelong habits for good health, enhances mental alertness and emotional stability, and encourages students to excel to the best of their ability.

Students participate in team sports throughout the academic year: soccer and cross-country in the fall, basketball (optional) in the winter, and lacrosse in the spring. The following choice of sports and/or theatre are also available to students who have met their sports requirements: theatre in the fall; yoga, dance, YMCA and theatre in the winter; and running, theatre, and occasionally tennis in the spring.
